Sixth Form Admissions

External applicants are warmly welcomed, along with internal applicants, to our successful, friendly and high-performing Sixth Form.
Both internal and external applicants are expected to achieve a minimum of 7 GCSEs at Grade B or above, with at least a grade 6 or preferably a grade 7 or above in any subject they are considering studying at A Level.
Places are normally offered to those whom the School believes are capable of successfully undertaking a course of 3 or 4 A Levels. You would be welcomed into School for an interview with the Head of Sixth Form, have the opportunity to meet teachers and students in the subjects you are considering studying at A Level, have a personalised tour of our facilities and perhaps spend a taster day here, if you would like to do so. Our students are very friendly and very much like to welcome new people to the School!
University outcomes are exceptional for BGS sixth formers, thanks to the quality of teaching, high aspirations, the extraordinary number of enriching activities which are offered beyond the standard curriculum and outstanding UCAS/careers advice. We look forward to meeting you!
